Garnishment and wage deduction proceedings restricted due to the COVID-19 pandemic may resume after June 25.
After more than a year since it was established, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker has rescinded Executive Order 2020-25, which suspended provisions of the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure that permit the service of a garnishment summons, wage deduction summons, and a citation to discover assets on a consumer debtor or consumer garnishee, effective June 25, 2021.
The updated executive order, 2021-13, is available here.
Executive Order 2020-25 had suspended Sections 5/12-705 and 805 of the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure (735 ILCS 5/12-705 and 735 ILCS 5/12-805), which permit service of garnishment summonses and wage-deduction summonses, respectively, as well as 735 ILCS 5/2-1402 of the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure (735 ILCS 5/2-1402), which permits citations to discover assets on a consumer debtor or consumer garnishee.
